Waterways & Floodplain Management

Our waterways program involves delivering activities to protect and improve the region's rivers, creeks and wetlands. The floodplain management program aims to build flood-resilient communities.

Flood Recovery

The Goulburn Broken catchment has been significantly impacted by the October 2022 flood event. Please read this page for recovery information.


Rivers and streams within the Catchment are highly valued for irrigation, industry, urban water supply, stock and domestic water supply, recreation, habitat and aesthetic beauty.

Floodplain planning

Through our floodplain planning and management program we aim to build flood-resilient communities by capturing and sharing flood knowledge to ensure future developments are not unduly exposed to flood hazard.
